Publisher Comments:

In this engaging autobiography, Pittsburgh lawyer and banker Robert F. Patton tells the captivating story of his life and career. Beginning with his boyhood on a western Pennsylvania farm, An Ordinary Life follows Patton through his distinguished career to his retirement.

In April of 1945, he enlists in the US Army, only to miss the big adventure of his life: World War II. Patton attends college at Westminster College, Pennsylvania, and meets his future wife and love of his life, Virginia. Patton is accepted into Harvard Law School, where he becomes an editor of the Harvard Law Review and graduates with honors.

In Pittsburgh, Patton joins the law firm of Buchanan Ingersoll. Through this fascinating position, he begins work in banking law and law firm management. After a thirty-year career with Buchanan Ingersoll, he leaves the practice of law to become chairman of Union National, a Pittsburgh bank holding company. Here he oversees the expansion of a local bank into a multi-bank holding company and the eventual merger that creates the largest retail banking firm in western Pennsylvania.

An Ordinary Life reveals Patton's appealing personality through the true story of friendships, family, business, and activities, and exemplifies the dignity of the American dream.
